My friend Jean-Manuel will say I take too many "postcard" pictures but I don't care, I just love this one! I took it yesterday evening on my way back from my father's. The two buildings on the left and right are part of the Trocadero, a palace located on the Chaillot hill and originally constructed by Napoleon for his son.
The nowaday Trocadero - that you can see on the picture now - was built for the world's fair in 1889. It hosts two museums - marine and man and offers in its center the most beautiful view of the Eiffel Tower of Paris. To be frank, I have been living in Paris for many years now and I very rarely - I am talking VERY rarely - stop here to look at the scenery. Though it's really magnificent.
